''The Causal Effect of the Cram Schooling Timing Decision on Math Scores''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.3 )
We take advantage of Taiwan Education Panel Survey data to evaluate the timing of the coaching effect on mathematics learning for junior high-school students. Our main finding suggests that the best strategy for the budget-limited parents is to send their children to cram schools for intensive learning in the 8th rather than earlier in the 7th grade, in order to enhance the scores for the math tests being held in the 9th grade.
